In 2009, BrownFlynn was asked to participate in the “100 Entrepreneurs Project” to benefit wounded soldiers at Walter Reed Hospital. The project helps provide business wisdom gleaned from selected entrepreneurs to the men and women who have served our country so, once they are healed, they are ready to potentially launch their own businesses and help support their prosperous futures.

Finally, BrownFlynn believes in the value of sharing our knowledge about sustainability in many different ways. From contributing as panelists in free webinars to presenting at conferences, luncheons and special events, we hope that those audiences, online and in-person, learn more about the importance of corporate responsibility and sustainability.
